Target & Neiman Marcus Collaboration – Favorite Thing

Good morning! If you follow me on ig or twitter @zahra_sandberg, you know that I was at Target at 8:00 a.m. the day the collection was officially launched. When I walked in, an employee immediately asked me if I was there for the Neiman Marcus collab and pointed me in the direction- I guess I fit the consumer profile!
Here’s what I got –
Lela Rose Blouse
Tory Burch lunch box and flask
Proenza Schouler Sweatshirt
Derek Lam Slippers

Here’s some other stuff I love but didn’t buy (yet…). I was in love with the Carolina Herrerra Notebook sets which would be a perfect Christmas present for any girl!

This Altuzarra Serving tray would be just as lovely to hold perfumes and trinkets on your dressing table.

And finally – who wouldn’t want a Diane Von Furstenburg yoga mat! Perfect for all of those new year resolutions coming up. Gorgeous!

Also – this wasn’t a Neiman Marcus collab item, but I picked up a new straightener this weekend from Target and I just wanted to share because it is so cute! It comes with a thermal clutch to hold it.

There was actually police security around the whole area, which was sort of funny to me. I asked an officer if they expected a mad house, and he said they had to break up actual fights in the fitting rooms during the missoni collaboration. Wow – was all I could say.
There was some other stuff that was cute, but you could tell the quality wasn’t there. I was almost going to buy this Tracy Reese blouse but the material was not really the greatest, the same with a Robert Rodriguez ruffle blouse.
There are some beautiful baby girl Marchesa dresses that I may just pick up for a possible future baby girl just because they are so adorable!
By the way, I fixed my email subscribe button at the bottom of the page, so if you subscribe (hopefully) you should be getting your new posts delivered! Thanks everyone for your emails and giving me the heads up that it wasn’t working. Email me if you find that it is not actually fixed. Thanks!
On another note – did anyone catch homeland last night? I am obsessed! Sadly, I missed Shahs of sunset. I was expecting to watch it on demand while I ran in the morning, but it wasn’t available, so I had to settle for reruns of E! News. I keep my workout entertainment mostly reality tv, favorites are the Real Housewives and the Kardashians. Please don’t judge!

Have a good one and thanks for visiting!

Last week we took a quick trip to escape the snow for some sunshine in Key Largo, Florida☀️ We spent every moment possible outside, Tom and Adam got their Scuba Diver PADI certification (yay!) while Sophia and I spent our days either swimming or drawing marine life and landscapes. This was my first trip after my sister passed last November, and even though I look so happy here, there were so many moments I felt the grief and sadness, as if it happened just yesterday. I am still figuring out how I want to show up in this space, as I have changed so much as a person since the loss. I just don’t feel called to post some of the things I shared before. Maybe that will change someday, or maybe it will just naturally evolve into something new. I think I will take this year to just process it all. (Even the idea of taking an entire year to think through something is a huge shift for my usually hyperactive type A personality) My focus at the moment is just living in the moment with my family and friends, spending time doing things that make me happy and healthy. I hope to share some of that journey here with you ~ thanks for following along ❤️
I had planned to shoot this outfit in collaboration with @lenacoutureofficial right before my dear sister passed away. Saba, the designer, was more than understanding if I didn’t want to anymore - but after thinking on it for a while I decided I wanted to - in my sister’s honor 💗 She was always my biggest hype woman. When i would feel like I’m not good enough or that I should quit (which was often) she would tell me I was unique and great and to keep it up. When I think of my sister, beauty and love is all that she embodied in her being. She expressed that on the outside also - as she loved to wear everything glam, bright & colorful, and full of bling. Hair done, nails done, everything did - that was Nusrat. For this shoot I took the time to get glam after a long hiatus - and makeup and hair took so long because I think I forgot how to do it, but afterwards I was surprised how I felt transformed. When I wore this gorgeous outfit that I know was designed with such love and incredible attention to detail by @lenacoutureofficial, I felt all of that beauty - like a walking piece of art, and very much at peace. Thank you so much to @divmophoto for capturing the feeling so well 💕
Ski weekend with my favorites ❄️❄️ So proud of Sophia for skiing on her own for the first time!
There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

Cozy for a coffee date ☕️
French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!
